Should Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas make a move for Benfica forward Rodrigo?

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is eyeing a deal for Benfica striker Rodrigo.

Spain under-21 striker Rodrigo is valued around £10m, with Spurs desperate to sign at least two strikers this summer, according to the Daily Star.

Villas-Boas has had his scouts watch Rodrigo and believes he has enormous potential - so Spurs are keeping close tabs.

Rodrigo was born in Brazil but moved to Spain as a youngster and now has a Spanish passport. He began his career at Real Madrid but also had a spell on loan at Bolton.

Spurs are looking at various strikers including Barcelona’s David Villa and Brazil star Leandro Damiao. But Villas-Boas also wants to bring in a rising star as well as an established striker.

Tottenham's Champions League dreams came to an end on the final day of the season, despite leading Arsenal for the majority of the campaign. Daniel Levy's reluctantcy to spend in January cost Spurs, who failed to bring in the likes of Leandro Damiao from Brazil or Williin from Ukraine.
